More than a Home: The Influence of Mount Vernon

More than a Home: The Influence of Mount Vernon

Presented by Columbia Museum of Art at Columbia Museum of Art

Dr. Lydia Brandt, assistant professor of art history at the University of South Carolina, shares valuable research and insight from her new book First in the Homes of His Countrymen: George Washington’s Mount Vernon in the American Imagination. Brandt chronicles the country’s fascination with the iconic Mount Vernon through advertising, prints, paintings, popular literature, and the full-scale replication of its architecture.

This program is the last lecture in our three-part lecture series, More than a Home held in conjunction with ReTooled.
